I have absolutely zero problem with this hit. No way should Foligno be fined, or penalized in any way. The fact that there was no call on the ice with four officials looking right at it should speak volumes. The FS Carolinas guys (Canes' broadcast) were screaming about the blindside rule. I'm sorry, but hits like Foligno's should ALWAYS be legal in hockey. It's not Nick's fault that Pat Dwyer was more concerned about counting the ruts in the ice and the spots on his laces than he was about his actual immediate surroundings. Nick saw man and puck and Nick separated man from puck. Basic defensive hockey, and because of it he's hit for 25 large. Disgusting.
